Lovely quaint restaurant, apparently expanding into a larger venue shortly to accommodate a larger restaurant. Lovey coffee and home bake. A busy little restaurant, obviously popular with all

Weary from our wanderings about the hills, trails and streets of this picturesque town, we came across this little coffee shop and were immediately invigorated by its atmosphere and service. Still do not know how we managed to get seated!? Then were suitably rewarded with delicious food and Coffee/Tea.

The recommendation was worth following up. Lovely cozy, quirky atmosphere. Fresh, healthy, homemade high quality food. Delicious selection of cakes and good coffee. Staff so helpful and friendly. It's not big, so seating space is limited. Interesting large table made from a door.
